      Maintenance completed, but there is still more come.

Bought this one used at the local toy fair a couple months ago for $7 or $8. It was complete but apparently had been played with (! The horror! The horror!) and had quite a few scratches, scrapes, and scuffs in the paint. Most of what I did on it was try to polish these out and I was I guess about 90-95% successful. It doesn't look new now, but it doesn't look too bad. About the only other thing I did was paint the chrome wheel spokes Testor steel for a less toylike took.

I was (pleasantly) surprised to discover that the thing is 1/25 scale, as can be seen when compared to the Testor quickbuild, which is labeled as 1/24 and visibly bigger.

Hey Snake,

You and I have very similar taste I guess. During my recent Ebay buying spree I bought 1 of these too. I bought it for the display case it came in, and also I thought I'd use the wheel/tire combo for another model.
